I’m missing something in the controversal equal pay bill that failed in the U.S. Senate yesterday along party lines, 52 Democrats for and 47 Republicans against, short of the required 60-vote threshold.
Is there something in the Democratic sponsored bill that makes it wrong for a woman to make the same as a male colleague doing the same job?
If I were a woman busting my butt doing the same job as others in my job, I think I would be a mite upset over this vote. Doesn’t a loaf of bread and milk cost the same for women as men? With so many single moms in the work force, many not receiving child support from their sperm-donor ex-spouses it is more of a struggle for women to survive than many men in today’s society.
So what’s the problem with businesses and equal pay?
Even if Republicans didn’t like the bill, as much as they have crapped over women and need their votes to elect a Republican president, I think I would have taken a pass on this one and supported the bill. Guess that’s why I never ran for office, I would vote my conscious and not along my party lines.
